English : Communist International
Political position: Communism
Existence: The Communist International, founded by Lenin and dissolved by Stalin, usually refers to the Third International, which was in existence from 1919–1943.[1] The First International, known as the International Workingmen's Association, was a mixture of socialist, communist, anarchist and trade unionist groups; it formed in 1864.[2] The First International split in two in 1876 over disputes between anarchists and statists (i.e., everyone else). The Second International formed in 1889 and was dissolved in 1916 because of failure to agree about World War I.[3] The Fourth International was founded in 1938 as a response to Trotsky's expulsion from the Soviet Union; it is explicitly Trotskyist.[4] There have been several calls for a Fifth International (including by Hugo Chávez), starting in 1938, yes the same year that the Fourth International was formed.[5]
If nothing else, the various communist internationals can be characterized as being highly schismatic.
